Creative engineering in the tradition of:

Leonardo da Vinci
(artist and inventor)
Ada & Leo is a kids' technology program focused on learning and creativity!
We offer afterschool, weekend, and summer courses for kids of various ages, generally 6-12 years old.
No prior experience is necessary!
We believe that:
Intro to Creative Tech
This is our flagship course!
Students will learn how to use technology creatively, by experimenting with our favorite technological learning tools and participating in exercises that bring technological concepts to life.
We've had students go through this whole course twice, and they've found that much is new and different each time it is taught, and that they are able to go ever deeper in their creative exploration.
We like to think of this class as a window into the world of creative things that are possible with technology; and there's no end to what you can see, touch and imagine through that window.
Topics vary by teacher, age group and length of the course, but usually include:
Intro to Animation
Students will use several methods and programs to create their own original animation films!
Topics will include:
Plotting and storyboarding
Intro to Game Design
Students will design, play, test, and revise games of all sorts!
Topics will likely include:
Revising your designs
All teachers are trained and vetted. The program is safety-conscious.
Even more importantly, we promise to care for the heart, mind and spirit of curiosity in your child as if they were our own children... (who will be in the class too!)
